  1. 1. Functional importance of estrogen receptors in the periodontium

    Author : Daniel Nebel; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Estrogen; Estrogen receptors; LPS; Periodontium; PDL cells; Gingival epithelial cells;

    Abstract : Östrogen är ett kvinnligt könshormon som även har andra effekter. Östrogen verkar i cellkärnan genom att binda till en östrogenreceptor (ER), som finns i två olika typer, ERα och ERβ. Parodontit (tandlossning) är en inflammationssjukdom som drabbar tandens fäste som svar på bakterier som normalt finns i munhålan. READ MORE

  2. 2. Expression and function of vascular estrogen receptors alpha and beta

    Author : Min Liang; Kärlfysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetologi; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; ubiquitin-proteasome pathway; MIP-2; MCP-1; iNOS; estrogen receptor knockout; estrogen receptor; aorta; estrogen;

    Abstract : Estrogen receptors (ER) are expressed not only in classical target organs for estrogen like breast and uterus, but also in male reproductive system as well as in non-reproductive organs such as brain, liver and bone. The functions of ER are quite well known in reproductive organs but less information is available regarding their function in vascular tissue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immunomodulation by estrogen and estren

    Author : Ulrika Islander; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : estrogen receptor knock-out mice; estrogen; estren; estrogen receptor; lymphopoiesis; T cells; B cells; immunoglobulin; inflammation;

    Abstract : Estrogen affects the development and regulation of the immune system. Treatment of gonadectomized mice with estrogen results in suppression of T and B lymphopoiesis, as well as decreased delayed type hypersensitivity reaction, granulocyte mediated inflammation and levels of IL-6 in serum.

  4. 4. Endocrine modulators and sexual differentiation in Japanese quail : With emphasis on the neuroendocrine system

    Author : Krister Halldin; Ted Ebendal; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biology; Japanese quail; sexual behavior; endocrine disruption; sexual differentiation; estrogen; estrogen receptors; avian; Biologi; Biology; Biologi; Ecotoxicology; ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Chemical disruption of the endocrine system in various animal species is currently attracting considerable interest, but avian models are not yet widely used in studying endocrine disturbances. This thesis shows the occurrence of alterations in sexual behavior and reproductive organs in adult Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) following embryonic exposure to estrogen-like chemicals.

  5. 5. Role of nuclear receptors in the regulation of human adipose tissue metabolism

    Author : Prasad G. Kamble; Jan W Eriksson; Ingrid Dahlman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : human adipose tissue; nuclear receptors; glucocorticoids; estrogen; PPARγ; lipocalin 2; glucose uptake; lipolysis; adipogenesis; genotype-based recall;

    Abstract : Nuclear receptors modulate expression of genes involved in adipose tissue (AT) metabolism. Their improved understanding may provide new treatment options for metabolic disorders such as obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). READ MORE
